Sun in photo with Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 (Nikon Mount) produces strange rainbow effect and ghosting?
Jul 9, 2013

Just bought this lens off eBay, 3 months old, USA warranty (not grey market). Wondering if someone with decent experience with this lens or lenses in general could take a look and tell me if the ghosting and rainbow effects etc. look within spec in these two photos. Thanks!

Notice the ghosts in the sky, and what's that rainbow stuff in the tree on the right side?

Look to the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's... normal?
